What People Say About Dr. Patrick Stiff, MD

I’m upset about several of these positive reviews here. “What people fail to realize is that transplants are hard.” As if my father didn’t know that. He worked as hard as anyone I know. Stiff failed him in giving him off label drugs that were too aggressive for his gvhd. Someone deemed cancer free died of a cold because of it. My family will forever regret consulting with Stiff.

Dr. Stiff is an incredible physician who routinely goes above and beyond for his patients. He was aggressive in the care of my father yet was also patient to explain in great detail where we were with treatments and what our options are. We're very grateful for Dr. Stiff and all his time and energies in helping our family heal.

I am upset by some of the reviews on here. Dr. Stiff could not be more invested in curing your loved one. He is kind, humble, and motivating. If you want someone to cure and fight to save your loved one, go see him. What people fail to realize is that transplants are not easy, you have to work hard! No one will work harder with you than Dr. Stiff.

Dr. Stiff was always in a hurry, never giving the attention needed. Never saw him during many month long hospital stays, only his associates. He is disconnected, and the patient is another unlucky person. Do your research, many gave poor reviews to him bc he has too many patients. He was snotty to my sister, who he said bothered him too much. Unbelievable. Well now she died due to his aggressive ways, although she was cured of cancer, it was the toxins in chemo that ruined her lungs.

Dr Patrick Stiff was very attentive to me and my family. No matter what the size of the concern, Dr. Stiff answered all of our questions. His bedside manners are outstanding and made not only my experience, but my family's more comfortable as well. Thank you so much Dr. Stiff.

My father died under his care, and was never given the standard of care for GVHD of the gut. Jumped to dangerous drug, which lead to his death. Very little communication, always seemed rushed. I am a physician as well, and was hoping for some professional courtesy discussion. He ignored my family's needs, and sent junior residents to manage the majority of my dad's transplant. If you are considering a BMT, I would absolutely not have a consult with Dr Stiff. Very poor communicator

Dr. Stiff treated my older brother and was a godsend to our family. He is extremely knowledgeable and caring while at the same time, offered up a bit of "tough love" when we needed it. It was a very difficult time for my brother and us all, but we're extremely thankful and lucky that Dr. Stiff and his team helped us through.

Dr. Stiff is truly an incredible doctor. I had been given my diagnosis from another hospital and we were not happy with their treatment plan. Loyola got us in to see him quickly and Dr. Stiff and his team worked extensively with us, explained everything to myself and my family, and was constantly engaged with my treatment. I'm here today because of Dr. Stiff and my family and I will forever be grateful.
